We have noted with deep concern, media reports on the unfortunate incident in Jammu on 26 September 2013 resulting in the loss of life of more than a dozen security personnel. The timing of this attack is particularly disturbing as it takes place a couple of days before the leaders of Pakistan and India are to meet in a bid to move towards improvement of relations. It is imperative that any such act of violence should not be allowed to deter us from pursuing a path to a better future for our peoples.
Pakistan, itself a foremost victim of this menace, condemns all forms of terrorism and has rendered immense sacrifices in this regard. Pakistan remains committed to eliminate the specter of terrorist violence from our society and our region and has onnumerous occasions offered cooperation to India in fighting this menace through laid down bilateral mechanisms.
Pakistan remains ready to discuss all outstanding disputes in a meaningful manner.
